my gx5 grandpa was in the Rockingham Raider's which was made up of Co. D 5th Calvary Regiment (later changed to the 63rd) and Co. K 3rd Volunteers (later changed to 13th Regiment). my gx5 grandpa was in Co. K.

i had a friend look him up on ancestry and thats how i found out most of the info i have on him, but then my grandma gave me a newspaper a few weeks ago from 1988, which marked a 100 years since our newspaper had been started and i found out that the company had been the 3rd, before it was changed to the 13th, and i found out the nickname for the regiment and all the battles that my gx5 grandpa's company had fought in.
